, we have the president winning re-election. we have john boehner returning to the speakership. harry reid returning. to being the senate majority leader. and while the status quo was the big winner last tuesday, the history books will not remember the names john boehner and harry reid as long as they will remember what this re-election meant for president barack obama. >> that's exactly right. it is a ratification. it is an affirmation historically. you could argue that maybe one of the reasons he's crying is he's going to have to deal with john boehner and harry reid going forward. so there could be a very practical trigger there. but certainly, i mean, what mike and john have said is exactly right. it's an important moment. he's the third democrat, fourth democrat, to do this in a century. woodrow wilson, franklin roosevelt, bill clinton and barack obama. not bad company to be in. >> by the way, i heard you say that on wednesday morning. who was the democrat -- the last democrat before that to do it? >> well -- >> that's a test. >> -- that is a test. >> jackson? >> i guess it would

the president today actually calling on boehner and harry reid to say we have to come together. we could have seen more of that from the first administrations that he is doing it now. what are the odds they get together? >> everyboby hopes they are high but you want to avoid the high stakes game of chicken and during the lame duck session. that could have been. but his willingness to meet with mitt romney and boehner to resolve the situation. but if you heard voters press conference he sounds like he is the same position under no circumstances will taxes ever be raised. gerr he sad the reelection of the president is not a mandate to ise taxes. this is a huge debate. can hey come together? >> i elieve we can seize the futre together. we're not as divided as our politics suggest as cynical as the pundits believe that greater than the sum and we will remain more than a collection of red states and lose states we are the united states of america. gerri: why didn't we hear this four years ago? >> we did. and eight years ago when a bomb gave the speech to the illinois state senators. and insisting
john boehner and mc mcmcconnell are as good as we have. >>neil: well the president needs speaker boehner more than mcth connell --. bucky>>governor huckabee: both are seasoned washington insiders. the republicans in the senate and the republicans in the house of representatives have to trust and follow their leaders. that will be anathema to a lot of republicans. you cannot have 535 people all negotiating for their particular part of the pie. it can't work. >>neil: who gives? >>governor huckabee: everyone the that is how you govern. >>neil: they have never done that. >>governor huckabee: you have to. >>neil: the president is saying elections have consequences. is the consequence of this, sock the rich? >>governor huckabee: the consequences of the election, we have more governors that are republican, same house of representatives, same senate, same president. meet the new boss, same as the old boss, nothing has changed. what has to change rather than sitting down and starting at point of where they disagree, they need to sit down and start at the point of where they can agree to t
developed, the way the parties are, tuesday night we are all in this together, boehner comes out the next day, yes, we can work this out, but over time, the reality is still up to very different parties with very different values, very different constituencies, and when republicans starts to get to squishy or a democrat starts to move to the middle, they get pounded on. shawn hannity, rush limbaugh, and shultz, and rachel maddow. i started seeing earlier, getting e-mails from the pccc, which is the progressive change campaign committee, which saw the success of 2010 on the right and said we could do the same thing on the left. there is just more and more movement on the extremes, demanding in the party faithful to stay faithful. we still have primaries and republicans have to figure out a way to avoid todd akins and richard mourdocks. there is no increase in the christine o'donnell vote, the witch vote. the republicans had five seats in the last two cycles for the have sacrificed a seat by nominating sharon engle and christine o'donnell, and now the two this time. republicans are going to
, will they come to terms of a deal? >>guest: speaker boehner struck a conciliatory note but what he meant is what mitt romney was talking about lowering tax rates and eliminating tax loopholes what erskine bowles supported in the "washington post" yesterday, a democrat. and you have senator schumer who noted the conciliatory tone of speaker boehner and he said it was a nonstarter because he will raise taxes on those that make over $250,000. >>neil: say he intends to do that and i am trying to save the nation beside read a prompter but i was trying to find a middle ground. if the middle ground is republicans getting over the issue of closing loopholes and getting rid of critics be like raising taxes and democrat could get over slowing the growth of entitlements is not like growing granny off the cliff they would be able to reach a deal to extend everything for six months or a year and get in the real work of making a simpler tax code or simpler budget process. what do you think of that? >> speaker boehner wants to do a small deal and have an extension doing what you suggest, a reform of a tax code
on abc news house speaker boehner ruled out any deal that lets any tax rates go up. >> raising tax rates is unacceptable and frankly, it couldn't even pass the house. i'm not sure it can pass the senate. >> vice president biden, meantime, told reporters off camera the voters gave democrats a clear mandate on taxes by re-electing a president who promised the following over and over again. >> another $5 trillion tax cut that favors the wealthy is not change. i'm not going to turn medicare into a voucher just to pay for another millionaire's tax cut. i'm going to lower taxes for middle class folks. let's also make sure the wealthiest households pay a little bit more. >> keeping them honest, americans did vote for that by a slim majority in the popular vote and comfortable majority in the electoral college. they also increased the democratic lead in the senate. however, they preserve republican control of the house so no matter how ugly you think the tone in washington has been over the last four years, no matter how childishly you think a lot of lawmakers have acted on a structural level, w
. >> sounds promising. tonight house speaker boehner ruled out any deal that lets any tax rates go up. >> raising tax rates is unacceptable. >> vice president biden told reporters that democrats gave a clear mandate that promises the same over and over again. >> another tax cut that favors the wealthy is not change. i won't turn medicare into a voucher to pay for another millionai millionaire's tax cut. i want to make sure that the wealthiest households pay a little more. >> keeping them honest, voters did vote in the popular vote. they increased the democratic lead in the senate. however, they preserve republican control of the house. no matter how ugly you think the tone in washington has been over the last four years, no matter how childishly you think a lot of lawmakers have acted, on a structural level who controls what, may be less change than meets the eye which is why what you will hear in coming weeks will sound less like this. >> everything doesn't have to be a fight. everything doesn't have to be a fight. >> more like this. more like each side getting ready for an epic figh
guest: john boehner said he was looking for a golf game with the president. i do not know, talking to the obama campaign during the election, they were confronting an angry set of voters, even those who supported them. the theatrics in washington -- we have heard a lot of callers talk about this. i don't know if they have a place right now. this is an extremely urgent thing they have to address. it could have real consequences on recovery, really end it, and i do not think we will see a lot of that. i do not think the president wants to strike that tone. i think it will be pretty serious. it does not mean they will not try to get together in some kind of setting, but i do not think it will be seen the light it was in summer 2011. host: we want to thank our two white house reporters. thank you both for being here. that does it for today's "washington journal." we will be back tomorrow at 7:00 a.m. with more of your questions and comments via phone and twitter. thanks for watching. host: [captioning performed by national captioning institute] [captions copyright national cable satell
crisis visiting our nation so far. and while president obama and house speaker boehner say they're willing to compromise they seem to have drawn the line at the issue of raising taxes. >> if we're serious about reducing the deficit, we have to combine spending cuts with revenue and means asking the wealthiest americans to pay more in taxes how we did it when bill clinton was president and the only way we can afford to invest in job training and manufacturing. all the ingredients of a strong middle class and a strong economy. some said despite the risk we should let our nation's economy go off part of the fiscal cliff in january allowing the top two rates to rise and they believe that doing that will generate more revenue for the federal government. here is the problem with that, raising those rates on january 1st would, according to the independent firm, ernst & young, destroy 700,000 american jobs. >> kelly: all right. angela mcglowan is a political analyst and joining us today, ladies, what we can see right now, there has to be some compromise, but washington is once again fin
the excesses' of your first term. john boehner seemed more open to the idea of allowing more revenue, the rate increases on fiscal cliff issue. i think the president, and i know his left wing, is certainly holding him to the pledge on the campaign trail that he will let the proper rate expire at the end of the year and intends to hold his own in arguing for that. host: margaret talev, that brings up the mandate question. does he say what george w. bush said, i have political capital and i intend to spend it? guest: if you have it, use it, or what other people say it for you. right now, president obama's game is not to come out of the box, acting takeda, and give republicans -- acting cocky and giving republicans an idea -- a reason to want to stick it to him. he is saying let's get this done. that is what he is serious about, there is no reason to set yourself up as having more leverage than you do. host: margaret talev, and the go to this headline in bloomberg. what does he do on his health care law, if anything? guest: so, it really is a little bit of the congress, and this will play out in
cliff. what he wants is higher taxes for the top earners. and speaker boehner is already saying on that part of this deal, no-dice. >> racing tax rates is unacceptable. and it couldn't even pass the house. putting increased revenues through reforming the tax code, i would do that if the president were serious about solving our spending problem and trying to secure our entitlement programs. i'm confident he and i can find the common ground necessary. bill: that's the same potion had the weekend before the election. meanwhile there are strong warning the fiscal cliff could have dire consequences. lay out the stakes here. what are they? >> according to the congressional budget office, the bean counters in congress, they say recession. if you cut spending and raise taxes as is planned january 1 you get a recession and a 1.9% -- you get a 9.1% unemployment rate next year. the republicans are saying do not raise tax rates. the democrats are saying, president obama and harry reid are saying tax the rich, raise tax rates. this is all about tax rates. the democrats led by president obama
directly to the american people and sell his case. john boehner said this is his moment. his opportunity to leave. shannon: i would like to play a little bit more about what john boehner has said. and then i would like to play more about what brett said about this. but first, what john boehner said to diane sawyer. >> raising taxes is the wrong prescription. >> raising tax rates is unacceptable. frankly, it could not even pass the house. shannon: bret baier is the anchor of special reporting. what is your reaction? we understand that the president will invite congressional leaders over. >> we will also probably here from his senior adviser, david plouffe. the one thing that is interesting, if you look at the polls on the question of income tax rates, you have 47% that want to increase for those about 250,000. no increase for anyone tax increases, and 13%, increases for all. 47% 1,250,000 or above and 48% don't raise them at all or reason for everyone. so, you know, if you look at the exit polls, there is not really a definitive answer there. the republicans are going to say this is not t
to tackle the impending fiscal cliff but the president and the speaker of the house john boehner each drawing lines that they say they will not cross. the major hurdles, that threat to send the economy into a tailspin, that's coming up next. >>> plus a nascar race turning into a full-scale brawl. look at this. mayhem breaking out of the everybody going at it. we'll tell you what set it off. after this. ve lately. but because of business people like you, things are beginning to get rolling. and regions is here to help. making it easier with the expertise and service to keep those wheels turning. from business loans to cash management, we want to be your partner moving forward. so switch to regions. and let's get going. together. jenna: well come back, everyone. now let's return to the economy. the president and house speaker john boehner are suggesting they are willing to compromise to prevent our economy from going over that so-called fiscal cliff but both sides are digging in their heels whether or not to race tax rates for the wealthy. rich edson of the fox business network watching
quo. asking the two to work together as house speaker john boehner put it the day after the election. >> the american people have spoken. they reelected president obama. they have again reelected a republican majority in the house of representatives. if there's a mandate in yesterday's results, it's a mandate for us to find a way to work together on the solutions to the challenges we all face as a nation. >> the other way to interpret the results is to see them as a resounding liberal governance. a larger and apparently more democratic majority in the senate. it's how harry reid framed the results. >> we had an overwhelming re-election of the president. we picked up seats in the senate and the house. it's not the status quo. >> one thing is clear. it will not look like any congress we have ever had. the most stunning exacten is the diminishing number of white men in house of representatives. in the current house, white men were 88% compared to 53% in the caucus. for the first time ever in history, white men will make up just a minority, 46% of the democratic caucus. women will make u
. look, i think the white house was pleasantly surprised and open to what john boehner said. i mean, obviously, they appreciated what they thought was a very thoughtful and well thought out position that speaker boehner made publicly about where he sees the negotiations, where he's publicly putting out there where he's willing to move for now. obviously, everything's in negotiation, everything's a little bit of posturing. but it certainly was a much different tone, for instance, than what came out of mitch mcconnell's office office the election, and we've plowed through that plenty. i think what you're going to see now is the white house wants to attack a little bit of time, be thoughtful how public -- what they say publicly versus how much maneuverer ability is there. the other unnamed player is chuck shumer. chuck schumer publicly said i like simpson bowls in the it made an effort but i don't like what they're trying to do with taxes. we can't do this with tax reform. taxes should go up. he wants to move the negotiating position on the democrats in a little bit of a different dire
and house speaker john boehner. and analysis from the national journal. last night and democrats held on to their senate majority. harry reid talked about the election results. we will hear from republican john bellair. -- john boehner. >> i am glad to be back. it was a late night, early morning. to it is clearly we're going increase our majority. but the results show a number of things. a number of things for certain. one is that we're the party of diversity. look at the results from all over the country. i'm looking forward to working with so many great accomplished centers. i have talked to virtually everyone of them. when i came to the senate, barbara mikulski was it as far as women. now one-third of our caucus is women. the remarkable work done by all these great centers to be. but the election is over and we have enormous challenges ahead of us. they're right here. and we have to sit down and go to work on it now, not wait. this was the message the american people sent from all over and that is they're tired of these partisan gridlocks. they're tired of things like i have one go

to the two of you, i've never been more hopeful about this problem getting resolved. john boehner made conciliatory comments last week and the president made conciliatory-- >> i think ben was saying on the tax issues raising on the rich, debate how much he's going to raise that. he said he wouldn't bend. >> go ahead. >> but that's not the only issue and that's not the only way to solve the problem. so, they will come together and have the solution in the next few weeks. >> boy, i'm glad somebody's optimistic about this, i'm not sure i am. >> i am. >> what i hear people-- >> what do you fear happen? >> there's an unholy alliance of the left saying let's go over the fiscal cliff and libertarians saying let's go over the fiscal cliff. >> neil: and you pick up the pieces under the new year that you want, is that it? >> i think that's pretty much what people think, but the reality is, we'll lose 2 million jobs at a time we can little afford it. the economy will go into recession if it's not already there. and that's a cost we can't afford it pay. >> neil: but you could make a political argu
democrats and republicans stop it all. house speaker john boehner wants a deal on spending cuts. president obama says that is not enough. >> if we're serious about reducing the deficit we have to combine cuts with revenue. >> joining us is jonathan strong. even if tax rates went up on the wealthiest households earning more than $250,000 a year the president, as the president demands, this would actually do almost nothing to reduce the deficit. i look at the joint tax committee report of conscious saying it would reduce the deficit only by 7%. that is 7% out of $1.1 trillion. in many ways is the president's solution more of an illusion? >> he is trying to sell this as a matter of fairness. he seems to be making progress politically on that front. you have a good point. another good question, there isn't any theory this would help the economy. the estimates are it would hurt this the economy. is now the right time for that? people are still hurting out there. >> gregg: the president is claiming, you heard him say this -- he has a mandate for raising taxes. i'll quote him. he said on tuesday
